Apple would likely replace the 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with a 1.4GHz or 1.5GHz i5 processor. It could also offer new storage options.
Recent rumors have suggested that Apple is working on a new 12-inch MacBook that offers a Retina display and an all new design. That device isn't expected to ship until late Q3 or early Q4.
